Customs officials snagged the man below in Hong Kong as he tried to smuggle the iPhones into mainland China.

Smugglers have been keeping custom officials busy. According to Metro, 18 smugglers have been caught with 282 iPhones strapped to their bodies over the past month. Man, this guy was going big with his haul.

Why the uptick in iPhone smuggling? Due to taxes, iPhone prices are higher in mainland China compared to Hong Kong and western countries.
